Venice Aldus 1497. Small folio [29.5 x 20 cm], (184) ff., without initial blank, 185 pp., without final blank. Corrected variant with the second leaf signed ‘aii’ and the last word on Kiir spelled ‘absente.’ Bound in 18th-century speckled calf, spine in 6 compartments, gilt, with red morocco title label, with patterned paper pastedowns and collector’s stamp "G." in blue on first page, with contemporary annotations in margins. Minor, faded waterstaining in upper margin and some finger soiling of first few quires, and occasional spotting. Very good overall. First edition of a collection of Platonic theological texts by the 4th-century BC writer Iamblichus, an instrumental figure in disseminating Neoplatonism. Due to the urging of his patron Cosimo de Medici, whose Florentine circle clamored for Hermetic texts, Marsilio Ficino translated and edited the collection. Aldus’ handsome imprint thus became a vital source for the transmission of Neoplatonism during the Renaissance.In his translation, Ficino emphasized the Hermetic passages, due to his veneration for the Egyptian Hermes Trismegistus. Iamblichus himself approached these passages carefully, cautioning the reader that many works circulating under Hermes’ name were not written by him. "Throughout De mysteriis Iamblichus stresses the necessity of ritual in religion and the power of contemplation.

FIRMICUS MATERNUS, Julius [ARATUS SOLENSIS; MARCUS MANILIUS; PROCLUS DIADOCHUS; and other Greek and Roman commentators].
First edition of this famous and beautiful collection of ancient astronomical texts, including the first editions in Greek of Aratus' <i>Phaenomena</i> and Proclus' <i>Sphaera</i>. This is one of the few illustrated books issued by the Aldine Press. The text also provides invaluable information concerning 4th century Roman society.<br/><br/> The first part of the work is devoted to the <i>De nativitatibus</i> of Firmicus Maternus (fl. AD 330-354), edited by Pescennius Franciscus Niger. Also entitled <i>Mathesis</i>, it "ranks as the most comprehensive textbook of astrology of ancient times" (Stillwell, <i>Awakening</i>, I:56). It represents popular traditions and sets out practical astrological methods, citing Hermes, Orpheus, Abraham and Aesculapius as sources. It also comprises a defence of astrology, the effects of the planets, the moon, the signs, and horoscopes. Following Bevilaqua's 1497 edition, this is the second edition of the text; since however Niger's dedication to Hyppolyto d'Este is also dated 1497, it seems that work on this edition was well underway when Bevilaqua's edition appeared on the market. <br/><br/> The second part of the book opens with the <i>Astronomicon</i> of Marcus Manilius (fl. 1st century AD), the first printed book on astronomy (first published in 1474). "The work of Manilius was the main exemplar of that 'poetic astronomy' which exerted such a powerful influence on German humanist thought from Regiomontanus to Conrad Celtis and beyond" (Rose, <i>The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics</i>, p. 105). The <i>Astronomicon</i> describes the sphe … [Click Below for Full Description]

HIERONYMUS
Ferrara: Laurentius de Rubeis, de Valentia, 1497. First Edition in Italian, First Illustrated Edition n. This is an especially desirable copy--because entirely complete--of an incunabulum with wonderful illustrations. Along with the "De Claris Mulieribus" (also 1497), this is considered to be the greatest achievement of Ferrarese book illustration. The numerous woodcuts of Jerome in his study, his pet lion at his feet, have great simplicity and charm, and the depictions of the life of nuns that accompany the "Regula" are, if possible, even more fetching. Sander (quoting Gruyer) says that the artist here shows a "lovable and supple imagination, has understood the intimate poetry of all the subjects," and has produced "varied little . . . scenes executed with a great deal of imagination and taste." Hind says that the woodcuts are "evidently inspired by the 'popular designer' at Venice, in particular by the cuts in his 'Vitas Patrum' of 1491 and 'Legenda Aurea' of 1494." Our copy is especially precious because it includes the four-leaf life (including title page) of Jerome illustrated with 17 woodcuts, which is absent most of the time, and the dedication leaf to Eleanor and Isabella d'Este with the date 1495. It is also unusual in that all five of its woodcut borders, often trimmed by the binder's knife, are found here within comfortable margins. One of the greatest Christian scholars of his age, St. Jerome (ca. 340-420) was a translator, scriptural commentator, biographer, and historian who is chiefly remembered for his creation of the Latin Vulgate version of the Bible, a tr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scomparti decorati con motivi vegetali. Tassello con autore e titolo applicato al primo tomo, perso al secondo. Piatti in carta marmorizzata con diversi strappi.

Mal legate le carte iniziali con la prefazioni che intervalla la vita del Berni.

ANSELM, Saint [1033-1109]
[Basel: Johann Amerbach, not after 1497]., 1497. small 4to. [ff. 208]. 2 columns. 49 lines & headline. gothic type. capital spaces with guide letters. later full vellum (front hinge cracked, dampstaining to upper portion of leaves, generally light to moderate, scattered light foxing, tear in upper blank margin of title repaired). Third Collected Edition of the works of the mediaeval philosopher, theologian, and church official, who held the office of Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 until his death. Anselm is regarded as the founder of scholastic theology. He was canonized in 1494. Included here are his three most famous works, the Cur Deus Homo, a treatise on the atonement, and the Proslogion, and the Monologion, which contain his formulation of the ontological proof of the existence of God (God is that than which nothing greater can be conceived; that than which nothing greater can be conceived must exist; therefore God exists). Although it attracted little interest at the time, the argument has long generated intense debate among philosophers, being taken up by Descartes and Leibnitz, and rejected by Hume and Kant. BM III 759. Goff A-761. GW 2033. Hain Copinger 1136. Pellechet 799. Polain (B) 230. Proctor 7648.. Hardcover. Very Good.
